Colour, colour, colour. That was the name of the game for Diane von Furstenberg's Spring '13 collection, which was presented today to a star-studded crowd — we spotted Sarah Jessica Parker, Oscar de la Renta, and Valentino sitting front row. And the designer's latest collection was just as exciting, as Creative Director Yvan Mispelaere brought forth smiling models decked out in coloured brilliance. It was a retro, '70s-inspired collection filled with flattering shapes: you can always count on DVF to know what a woman wants — billowy blouses with exaggerated sleeves, silk peplum skirts, draped tops, jumpsuits, floaty silk maxi dresses, and of course, wrapped silhouettes. Also, get ready for the resurgence of dresses over pants: the majority of the looks on the runway highlighted long tunics over trousers, creating a long and lean shape. With finishes and embellishments ranging from sequins to silver balls, Mispelaere showed attention to every single detail. Gowns showed ethereal, floaty layers tempered with metal hardware, giving off a simultaneously Grecian, yet modern feel. We especially loved the bold red gown adorned with a silver-plated necklace.

  • Trends: Peplum, tunic dresses, pastels, draping.
  • Colours: Teal, turquoise, pink, orange, lime green, red, blue.
  • Key Piece: We loved the ball-embellished tunic paired with sleek trousers.
  • Accessories: Printed sunglasses, sky-high embellished wedges, ball-embellished sandals, chain-strap sandals, statement clutches, silver belts, and techy Google glasses (Sergey Brin was also sitting front row to debut the new technology).
  • Who Should Wear It: Every woman, but if we had to choose, front-row attendee Sarah Jessica Parker would wear DVF's bright hues to perfection.
